This chapter examines the methodology involved in conducting the interviews on the link between feminism and soap opera for this study. It explains that the interviews highlight the relationship between biographical and ethnographic subjectivities, and subjects the testimonies of the autobiographies to the procedures more normally reserved for ethnographies. It discusses the three main criteria used in the selection of the interviewees.
